2013 Subaru Outback Premium 2.5i All-Weather+Moonroof Venetian Red Pearl W/ Ivory Coth
You are totally right. I'm not sure all the hubbub on here about these expensive car car products. I've always used Meguires and our cars still look great! Next thing that'll happen is everyone will start up a discussion on which synthetic oil is best (yet again)Taking care of your car is good but this is an Outback, not a Range Rover... keep it clean, prevent rusting & use Klasse AIO once (or twice) a year plus an occasional 303 Protectant on headlights, front-end to keep of bugs off is more than enough.
Once you've taken a long road trip & hit some colorado trails, you'll forget about what kind of wax to use. I've got a few large paint chips on my hood I just use specs of 3M tape to cover them until I get whole bunch of them, then I'll touch them up all at once or have dealer take care of it.
Enjoy your car & just drive.
